Placer County is rapidly changing from farms and quiet suburbs to a more crowded, densely populated region. With that growth comes a larger, complicated, and intimidating criminal justice system. If you're facing criminal charges, you need a Placer criminal lawyer who knows the policies, procedures, and people of the Placer superior court system and district attorney's office, and has the expertise to devise a quality legal defense.

Investigative Services and Drug and Alcohol Analysis

Building a quality defense may involve the use of investigators and chemical analysis firms to put together a full understanding of the events that brought about your arrest. I work with top P.I.s and drug and alcohol laboratories in the region to help me build a case that protects your rights and defends you against the allegations that have been made. The investigators can go to the scene of the alleged crime to gather evidence and can track down and talk with witnesses. The drug and alcohol labs can analyze blood samples gathered during an arrest and provide expert testimony at trial.

Former Major Crimes Prosecutor

I use my background as a former prosecutor to formulate an effective defense strategy for each of my clients. Since most cases are settled through a negotiated plea bargain, my expertise can help you get the right agreement. If your case goes to trial, my record of trial success can be invaluable to you.

Placer County Courthouses

Placer County has three courthouse locations. Where your case is processed and adjudicated depends on the circumstances and location of the alleged violation. Most adult cases are assigned to the Santucci Justice Center in Roseville, a facility that opened in 2008 to handle the county’s growing caseload. Additional court facilities for adult cases are located in Tahoe City. A facility for juvenile cases is located in Auburn.
